Wolgang & Holger are exploring an old analog printing technique called the collotype and they aim to revive a working print press with improvements to research its printing applications. Traditional methods are always succeeded by newer technology which promises more efficient, convenient, accessible, and cheaper alternatives–which has been attributed to the death of the collotype. However, it is also prudent to preserve the roots and present the history of technology to educate our future generations.
As photographers, I think we are always looking for a bag that better fits our particular needs, be that a larger bag to carry a ton of gear or a smaller bag to grab and go with a basic kit. One thing that always seems to come up is your bag either being too much or too little for a given task.

There’s something very exciting in the mix for film photographers today: a brand new Kickstarter called Lab Box wants to allow photographers to develop their film in daylight, at home, on the road, or pretty much anywhere.

As you most likely know, our Analog Zine Kickstarter was fully funded. Again, a genuine thank you to everyone who donated. But I’d like to summon everyone’s attention who was interested in donating to the project but didn’t because it was too early on. With less than 48 hours left in the campaign, at this point you’re basically just buying a zine with the option of a year long basic subscription to La Noir Image; our premium black and white photography website.
This is one of our last reminders: our Analog photography zine Kickstarter is now fully funded. Again, a big thank you to everyone who made this possible. It means a whole lot to us. However, if you still want one and were afraid to donate before, you’ve got no worries now. At this point, you’re essentially just buying a zine with the option of also getting a subscription to La Noir Image.
Last night, we reached our Kickstarter initiative goals and we got the $3,000 we’re asking for in taking the first steps to the creation of our Analog photography zine. A big, giant thank you goes out to everyone who spread the message, funded, and more importantly, believed in us. We promise you, we’re not going to let you down.
Analog photography is back and here to stay. Though that isn’t to discredit what digital photography is all about, there’s a special Je Ne Sais Quoi about analog photography that involves the process and the more personal nature involved with being in the zone and the moment at all times. To get even more photographers excited about analog, we’re putting together a special zine later on this year which we’re trying to Kickstart. You can support it here and check out the work of four of the photographers who will be showcased.
The Jollylook is a brand new camera announced on Kickstarter that spits out Instax Mini sized photos while also having a very DIY and vintage appeal to it. Naturally though, lots of people have questions about it and how it works. So we got an exclusive interview with Oleg Khalip – the creator of Jollylook.
And guess what? It seems like larger formats are coming!
